Silver Alert Criteria:

ALL of the following statutory criteria must be met before the N.C. Center for Missing Persons will activate a Silver Alert:

* The person is believed to be suffering from dementia or other cognitive impairment- regardless of age
* The person is believed to be missing – regardless of circumstance
* A legal custodian of the missing person has submitted a missing person's report to the local law enforcement agency where the person went missing
* Law enforcement reports the incident to the NC Center for Missing Persons

The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons is the only agency that can activate a Silver Alert and will do so ONLY at the request of an investigating law enforcement agency.

North Carolina Amber Alert

AMBER Alert Activation Criteria

ALL of the following statutory criteria (GS §143B-499.7) must be met before the NC Center for Missing Persons will activate an AMBER Alert.
The child is:
a. 17 years old or younger
b. believed to have been abducted,
c. not taken by a parent (unless the child is in danger)
d. not believed to be a runaway or voluntarily missing and the abduction has been reported to and investigated by a law enforcement agency.
The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons is the only agency that can activate an AMBER Alert and will do so ONLY at the request of an investigating law enforcement agency. It is then the responsibility of the Center to determine whether there is sufficient identifying data to justify AMBER Alert activation. For instance, there must be sufficient descriptive data on the child, abductor and/or abductor's vehicle for the public to be on the lookout for something. It does no good to activate an AMBER Alert if sufficient information can't be provided to the public.

If the abduction of the child is known or suspected to be by a parent of the child, the Center may disseminate information through the AMBER Alert System if the child is believed to be in danger of injury or death.

What to do if a child is missing
If a child is missing, family and friends should immediately notify local law enforcement. If a child is abducted, time is valuable.
• File a police or sheriff's report. Include information on where the child was last known to be, as well as names of the individual's family and friends. Provide officers with a recent photo as soon as possible. Law enforcement can immediately enter child abduction cases into the FBI's National Crime Information Center. The center allows officers nationwide to share information about endangered children, increasing the chance that the child will be found.
• Request that law enforcement put out a Be On the Look Out (BOLO) Bulletin
• Ask for an organized search with the use of tracking dogs if possible.
• Limit access to your home until law enforcement investigators arrive and have collected evidence. Do not touch or remove anything from your child's room or your home. There may be clues to the whereabouts of your child.
• Give investigator all facts and circumstances related to disappearance including what efforts have already been made.
• Write a detailed description of clothing worn by the child and any personal items your child had at the time of his or her disappearance. Note any birthmarks, scars, tattoos, or mannerisms, and supply any photo that may show the marks. Give this information to the investigator.
• Make copies of recent photos for law enforcement, news media, the N.C. Center for Missing Persons, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and any volunteer groups aiding in the search.
• Designate one person to answer your telephone. Keep a pad of paper by the phone to jot down names, telephone numbers, date and time of calls and the purpose of the call. You may want to get law enforcement to put a tracer on your phone and get an answering machine that will tape calls. You may also want to add caller ID. If you do not have a cell phone, you may want to get one so that you can be reached at any time.
• For cases that are older than 30 days, help officers locate dental and medical records.
